South Carolina Federal and SCORE
South Carolina Federal Credit Union is proud to sponsor Charleston Coastal SCORE Chapter 285.
The mission of Charleston Coastal SCORE Chapter 285 is to provide professional management assistance to small businesses through the voluntary service of its members, who freely give of their knowledge, expertise and experience, with the ultimate goal of improving the economy and community which we serve.
SCORE has many seasoned mentors at their disposal to help business of various sizes improve their influence, productivity and business plan. Every Mentor has proven expertise in some area of business.
What sets SCORE apart from some business advisory services? They’re all volunteers, their assistance is free and many of them have been in your position at one time. SCORE also works closely with the Charleston Metro Chamber of Commerce who has a course in writing business plans to help your business succeed. In addition to the private one-on-one mentoring they provide a large reference library with sample business plans and information about various businesses.
SCORE also provides educational seminars, offering two evening seminars each month. These two seminars touch on everything a business owner should be familiar with, such as the many agencies available to help them as well as how to understand; Cash Flow, Balance Sheets, P&L, Marketing, requirements to get a business loan and of course the many legal requirements for a business. These subjects are all taught by experienced presenters. They also have evening seminars on insurance, website, QuickBooks and patents. All of this is done to help you be a better informed business person.
